Fade - Jenni Granholm

Argentea Gallery, 28 St Paul's Square, Birmingham, West Midlands, B3 1RB
Veil (2019) © Jenni Granholm


Argentea Gallery is proud to present the first UK exhibition of photographs by Finnish artist Jenni Granholm. Interested in the invisible struggles everyone faces, Granholm's work draws on her own personal experiences and explores intense psychological themes.

The semi-autobiographical nature of her work is most apparent in Hush, an on-going project that deals with living a life in secret from which there seems to be no escape. Through her enigmatic self-portraits her work deals with themes of femininity and restraint, entanglement and the desire for freedom coupled with the fear of it. Based on her own personal experiences the body plays a central role in her simple, uncomplicated compositions.

Granholm's series Twine explores her relationship to her homeland, in particular as a place of healing. With a crispness of visual representation her elegant depiction of the landscape promotes the pursuit of harmony and self-renewal. By minimising detail in favour of horizons and boundaries they are landscapes of a state of mind, evoking a connection between artist and place.

The deliberate use of a soft pastel colour palette gives her images a fragile beauty and an unashamedly feminine aesthetic.

Jenni Granholm (b.1979) is a photographic artist living and working in Tampere, Finland. She began her BA Photography at the College of Fine Arts (Sydney, Australia) and undertook her final year at Aalto University (Finland). In 2010 she gained her MA Digital Arts from Camberwell College of Arts, London. Her work has been exhibited internationally in solo and group exhibitions in Australia, Russia, Finland, Northern Ireland and London. She has also had work published on the front cover of Neste Oil Magazine (Finland) for three successive years and was a featured artist in Aesthetica Magazine's on-line platform.
